    So why is DKR a speed run game? What makes it in particular amenable/good for it?

    Unfortunately by the time Rebirth came out it was too late to be featured.

    it's just the same as original BoI but with a few more items and a few less bugs, I think

    The four-way Super Metroid race with commentary last year was also definitely one of the best moments in Done Quick history. The commentary was great, all four guys had great runs, it was back and forth constantly, and the ending was absurdly close.

    You know it's a bit odd of me but as a massive Metroid fan... I don't care much about speedrunning. Still, this was an awesome race to watch, and I was on my edge of my seat when it first ran.


    Do you think we'll see any other Metroid games during AGDQ this year? I know Super is kind of the gold standard for speedrunning, but I really wanna see the other games too, if only for wacky tricks and l33t skillz.

    Also, in case anyone is wondering, the "Kill the animals/Save the animals" thing comes from the fact you can save the friendly alien/animals during the end segment of Super Metroid.

    it's not a bad game, it's just boring to watch speedrun IMO

    Awesome... but alas it seems a lot of the best game streams I can't watch live. So while I'll miss out on all y'all giving color commentary, at least I can enjoy it thanks to the magic of the internet.

    And now a random off-topic question:
    Wait is TB part of AGDQ or something?

    Nah, but people can attach comments to their donations and the announcer person-thingy reads some of those.

    diddy kong racing has a better battle mode than mario kart, mario kart is a much much much better kart racer

    Boy I sure love 16-lane tracks that all look like generic desert mountain jungle with soft curves, no hazards, not a single other kart in sight anywhere, boring powerups, little to no sense of speed and a framerate that plummets as soon as you're playing multiplayer.

    (seriously though a couple years back I was at a retro gaming party and there was Mario Kart 64 and DKR playing literally side-by-side and let me tell you Mario Kart 64 has not become a boring game in the years since, unlike DKR).

    diddy kong racing has so little connection to the kong aesthetic that i wonder why that was the name they chose

    it looks way more like a banjo kazooie game than anything else

    Considering Banjo and Conker are in it and Diddy and that Kremling are the only connections to DK, that was pretty clearly Rare just making their Rare karter and then Nintendo made them have it star Diddy for brand recognition.

    Which brings us to how they totally should've put Jetpac Guy, the Battletoads, the Blast Corps bulldozer, Fulgore and TJ Combo in the game too.

    Which is exactly why it flew directly under so many people's bad game radar. But it was a bad game.

    It's actually a good game and a fun speed run game, but not a 100% run with like no commentary.

    honestly any game that has an expected finish time of over 2 hours is already a dicey watch

    Mario Kart Wii is the second-worst Mario Kart but it's still better than Diddy Kong Racing.
